Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Upon arriving, your eyes will be met by one of the most spectacular sights in all of Italy. A paradise of crystal water, vineyards clinging to cliff sides, and pastel harbors. Hop on and off the local tram to visit the fishing villages. At each stop, stroll along the pathways filled with Italian coastal cuisine, sample local delicacies and snap photos that will leave all your friends and family at home jealous of your time ‘studying’ abroad! Should you want to keep exploring, continue on and hike the ‘Path of Love’ to see some of the best views Cinque Terre has to offer. Once you have had your fill exploring, relax on the beach with a piña colada in Monterosso before heading back to Florence.
